      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $10.83 21/17 -887 hands Af 2.0 Cbets flop - 87%, FCbet 44%
      BTN: $3.30
      SB: $10.00
      Hero (BB): $3.55
      UTG: $13.79

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 7:diamond: Q:diamond:

      fold, CO raises to $0.30, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65, 2 players) 9:spade: 8:club: T:heart:
      Hero bets $0.46, CO calls $0.46

      Turn: ($1.57, 2 players) 2:spade:
      Hero bets $0.70, CO calls $0.70

      River: ($2.97, 2 players) 9:club:
      Hero checks, CO bets $2.10, fold

      Villain steals from late pos. 40%. So I decide to call from BB with Q7s.

      Flop brings open ender with Q as overcard that would gove a higher straight.

      Although flop hits a lot of his range, calling in this spot might be too obvious of what hand I have and in case I hit, he will not pay for it.

      So basically plan is to double barrel.

      First barrel sizing was closer to pot and second smaller because turn was blank and he is definately not folding on turn un less I make a crazy overbet.

      On river I do not hit so check/fold

      Hello,

      Definitely a fold preflop. Q7s isn't strong enough to defend our blind OOP and we are going to lose a lot of money with this hand.

      I don't like much donking this board. We are likely to get called a lot here.

      As played, turn doesn't change anything so just check/fold there.
      If you go for a bet you should bet bigger.

      The river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Thank you for reply.

      Would KQ or KJ change situation and we could barrel 2 streets?
      Or in this case best we could do is check call max 2 streets and if we do not hit give up on river?
